Geraldine is after an alibi that might make sense of the murder, but it is hard enough to make sense of her own past and family life. The ninth puzzle of the Geraldine Steel series.
Two victims and a suspect whose alibi appears open to doubt... Geraldine Steel is thrown into a double murder investigation which threatens not only her career, but her life. When her previously unknown twin Helena turns up, her problems threaten to make Geraldine's life turn toxic in more ways than one.
